About Me

I am a partner at Thorpe North & Western, and have practiced with this patent law group since 1999.  My practice focuses primarily on patent preparation and opinions, as well as trademark law.  When not engaged at the office, I spend my time primarily with my family and being engaged in my community.  Any spare time I have after that is spent on a few hobbies that I enjoy, namely photography, guitar, and flying my Cessna 182.
